Enriching and Enlightening!

Spending New Year's in Paris was the perfect start to the program. The housing arrangements were fabulous, and the academic curriculum was engaging and fascinating. Three weeks is definitely not enough to see this beautiful city, and was the perfect setting for making friends and having unforgettable experiences.

The class itself served to enhance my experience in Paris. The professor was knowledgeable and personable, and the class took place primarily outside the classroom, allowing visual learning.

What would you improve about this program?
The services for non-French speakers. I was one of the few students in my program that spoke French, and I found that many of my classmates were reliant on me to navigate and interact with locals. There were situations involving our housing where the landlady or a plumber came to our apartment and my roommates could not speak with them.
